AT&T announced that it will roll out an update for the Samsung Galaxy Note II to enable multi-window support. Multi-window is a split-screen feature that allows users to view two apps at once.
The update will be offered over the air on December 27, which means that users will not need to hook up their phabulet to the Samsung’s proprietary Kies desktop software. AT&T may be rolling out the updates in phases so don’t be concerned if you don’t see an update notification right away.
Multi-window support is a nifty feature that was introduced with the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3. The feature splits the Note II’s screen in half, allowing users to assign an app to each half of the screen.
